In this new roundup of the latest sound effects libraries we have powerful background sounds that will keep your audience suspended in disbelief. We have ambiences of a quiet Canadian city and a huge assortment of room tones, as well as a Stand-Alone version of the very successful Edward Ultimate footstep/clothing/prop engine, and foley sounds of household items being opened and closed.

We also have subtle UI effects created with Tibetan singing bowls, in-your-face impacts that will test your audience’s nerves, and onboard and external sounds of an American tractor. If you are looking for sounds you can interact with, this is your week!

Quiet Streets
 
  • City Life Quiet Streets Play Track 87+ sounds included, 216 mins total $69

    A slight breeze, the city rumble, distant people chatters, a bird passing by, crickets chirping, a little rain or snow, the tranquility inside the city is a fragile and magical moment.

    City streets are the channels of all the possibles, a heat place for sensorial stimulus connecting people lives and their urban activities throughout the day. Yet when it becomes quiet we still perceive its energy and are able to sense the mood of the moment with serenity.

    These recordings were made at ground level with very little editing in order to keep them natural and as close as a human would experience the city on a daily basis. At times, distinct activities can be heard in the distance although the most noisiest events were taken out. Each file is loopable.

    Also, every season and weather condition are represented. This library has been thought for the universal need of sonic bed in urban scenes, used as glue or ‘exterior roomtone‘.

    This selection is the result of 15 months of recording throughout the multicultural city of Montreal (considered the most European City in North-America). The mix of culture in this city gives it a universal flavor that makes it belongs to the citizen of the 21st Century world.

    The library contains 60 Stereo ambience and 27 Surround ambience recordings. Each sound files are between 1 to 5 minutes long. The surround recordings are embedded in an interleaved wav files of 4 channels (quad).

    TESTIMONIALS & BUYERS COMMENTS

    “I had a Tesla in a show and realized I had no Tesla library – This kit got the job done perfectly – Thanks Rick!

    -Jonathan Lipman, MPSE
    Sony Pictures: “The Good Doctor” network TV series

    “Rick’s TESLA SFX library was a life-saver for us on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce, especially since Tesla demands that ONLY authentic Tesla sounds be used whenever their vehicles appear in a scene! Rick’s FX gave us that authenticity. Very valuable resource. Thanks Rick!”

    – David Briggs
    Supervising Sound Editor, HBO “Divorce”

    “Hey Rick! Awesome job on the Tesla library! Literally minutes after downloading, I cut one of the servos into a commercial I’m working on… I’m going to get a TON of mileage out of the wheel recordings. I feel like wheels are a really difficult sound to get a great recording of… All around great job!”
